Restore-A-Garage Epoxy Review

Application: 8

– The Restore-A-Garage Epoxy is a two-component coating system and is easy to apply and the directions are easy to follow. Once you mix Part A and Part B together, you spread the coating over the surface with a notched squeegee and even out with a roller. We were able to cover our 3-car test garage in less than 30 minutes. Using Spiked shoes we then broadcasted the Fleck evenly over the surface. We top coated later with their optional Gloss Aliphatic Urethane coating. This rolls on very easily.

Gloss Level after Application: 9

– The high 100% solid content of the Restore-A-Garage Epoxy Coating gives a nice gloss to the floor. We top coated this with the Gloss Top Coat that is optional and adds additional shine and protection to the surface. FYI, they do carry an optional Satin sheen if you prefer a lower luster.

Overall Appearance after Application: 9

– Restore-A-Garage Epoxy Coating is thicker (100% solid) in consistency than any of the other DIY brands but applies very well with the squeegee applicator. Applying at 10 mils, the coating is considered a one-coat application. We used a medium to heavy broadcast for the decorative fleck. French Gray Color. The overall finished appearance was excellent. See picture.

Appearance/Peeling/Wearing After 2 Years: 9

– Restore-A-Garage Epoxy had no peeling at all and retained about 90% of its shine and gloss at the 2-year mark. Overall the Restore-A-Garage Epoxy Coating was in almost perfect condition.

Solid Percentage of Epoxy: 10

– The Restore-A-Garage Epoxy is a 100% solid Epoxy Coating.

Overall Score Restore-A-Garage Epoxy at 2 Year Period: 9

– The Restore-A-Garage Epoxy is a Commercial Grade Epoxy Coating System made easy to apply for your average DIY homeowner or contracting professional. As concrete restoration contractors who have been restoring all types of concrete for 20+ years, this is the top Epoxy system that we have seen or used. The Restore-A-Garage Epoxy applies easily, looks, and performs with 100% durability, and overall looked fantastic on our customer’s floor. Any future maintenance would consist of applying another coat of their Top Coat Urethane as needed.

I’m looking at applying to a basement floor that I will power wash and use TSP on. Right now it’s not painted, but the previous owner put self leveler on that is crumbling. Is there any other prep work that needs to be done other than removing the self leveler and washing? Thanks for your help.

Hi, when applying the clear coat did you sand first? From their website, they mention:
“You can avoid sanding by applying it 15-18 hours after applying the epoxy, but you risk the slight chance of the R-A-G Clear Top Coat separating from the R-A-G Epoxy.”
Wondering which path you took. Thanks!

Is the finish as slick/slippery as regular concrete? We will have foot traffic from the back yard pool area into the epoxied garage floor in order to get to the bathroom, and wondering if there is something that should be mixed in when applying to help prevent slipping?

I just had my basement floor professionally done with epoxy coats to give a wood plank finish but is far too shiny, looks plastic. I am NOT happy with this very glossy look. The professional told me there is nothing he can or would do to make a satin or matte finish!
HELP is there any thing I can do??

Could you tell me how many pounds of decorative fleck you used on the 3 car garage to get the medium-heavy coverage? I have an approx 1100 sqft garage. The website says 6-8lb per 1000 sqft for heavy coverage and then jumps to a whooping 200 lb per 1000 sqft for full broadcast. Thanks for the help
